The US Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard, stated this during a chat with journalists in Abuja.

She said Washington had opened discussions with Nigeria on the issue.

The envoy said: “That is something we are very eager to partner Nigeria on. I have had at least three conversations in the last two months on this subject. I won’t like to go into details.”

“I hear people making the analogy with Afghanistan a lot, it does not match up. When you listen to what President Joe Biden said on how troops went to Afghanistan in the first place, it was because they were in a horrible tragedy, over 3,000 Americans were killed.

“That is a different construct. Nigeria and the US are sovereign nations that have had strong bilateral relations. I don’t actually think the two match up.”

A retired Nigerian Navy officer, Kunle Olawunmi, had claimed last week that several government officials were behind the country’s security challenges.
